Transporters Warn of Effects of COVID-19 Measures on Food Supply

Transporters Warn of Effects of COVID-19 Measures on Food Supply | MED-Amin network | Scoop.it

Olive Oil Times, 02/04 - The COVID-19 con­tain­ment mea­sures cou­pled with uncer­tain­ties among the trans­porters have been slow­ing down inter­na­tional trade and food sup­plies in Italy.
Olive oil bot­tlers are strug­gling to ensure that imports will be reach­ing their fac­to­ries in the com­ing weeks to meet the demand.
Many Euro­pean logis­tics work­ers expressed fears that com­ing to Italy could put them in quar­an­tine upon return­ing to their own coun­tries. New safety mea­sures and addi­tional doc­u­men­ta­tion requests have been tak­ing their toll on olive oil and other cru­cial food imports.

Food Security and Conflicts in the Mediterranean Region

Sébastien Abis, Economy & Territory (IEMed, Mediterranean Year Book 2018)

There has always been a close connection between geopolitics and food security. Though this conflict dynamic is not new, it could intensify in the future. Such a world-wide observation takes on an exacerbated dimension in the Mediterranean Basin. To understand the interactions between agriculture, food and security, it is useful to put the challenges posed into perspective over time and recall certain factors.

Sébastien Abis (Director of the Club DEMETER and Research Fellow at the French Institute for International and Strategic Affairs (IRIS)), gives us his perspective in this new article.

Towards a green economy in the Mediterranean. Assessment of National Green Economy and Sustainable Development Strategies in Mediterranean Countries

(released in 2016 and still up-to-date!)

Existing strategies that are publicly available and accessible and the opinions and perceptions of key Green Economy and Sustainability practitioners were the basis of the assessment. In a nutshell, the main outcome of the study is that the large majority of Mediterranean countries have out-dated or incomplete national GE/SD strategies. Often they are vague, not giving clear definitions or indicators. Among the 22 Mediterranean countries monitored, we can see many differences in the detail of strategies and supporting legislation.
